Regions and Chapters

The delivery of quality programs, products and services is DBIA’s number-one priority. In partnership with our 14 Regions, our volunteer leader members make an impact on the local design and construction community by providing support in local markets through the offering of educational programs, networking events, legislative efforts and owner outreach. By advocating excellence in the community, DBIA Regions and their Chapters are able to meet the challenges of growth and change in our industry today.
